By adding McGehee, the Yankees filled an immediate need at the corner infield
positions. Third baseman Alex Rodriguez is out with a fractured left hand,
while first baseman Mark Teixeira is battling a left wrist injury.
McGehee batted .230 with eight home runs and 35 RBI in 92 games with the
Pirates this season.
Qualls compiled a 6.14 ERA in eight games for the Yankees after being obtained
from the Philadelphia Phillies on July 1.
